Plot twist: it was the same fry.
Five minute rule
Sheesh, that's generous. We had a three second rule. Longer than that, you were too slow, the dogs had hoovered it up.
We had the iguana rule. As long as an iguana didn't step on it, it's good to go. We also had the camel rule
So what’s the camel rule?
As long as a camel didn’t spit on it…
That's a low bar.
The cat rule then? Nobody else had that?
Nah but we did have “segal’ed”, where it was alright as long as Steven segal didn’t get his greasy hair all over it.
What about the Flex Tape rule?
I had the Danny devito rule
That food must have been Under Siege quite a bit.
Growing up in Galapagos, we had the blue-footed booby rule.
Especially if you don't have camels.
As long as no one humped it
I, uh...I uh...sure.
Good policy. Iguanas harbor very dangerous (to humans) strains of salmonella on their bodies. You need to wash your hands thoroughly after handling one.
Thanks a lot mom... "5 day rule" my ass!
Five customer rule
Thank god we didn’t have to resort to the 10 min rule...
Once I had a woman order chicken wings, adamant that she didn't want any sauce on them, just naked, because she couldn't handle spicy. I placed the order and went back to tell the cook again, in person. I brought the plain wings out to her, and she told me they were waaaaaaay too spicy. I took them back to the line, and confirmed with the cook that he hadn't done anything at all to them. I said "Ok, just leave these here for a few minutes." and put them back under the heat lamp. A few minutes later I went back to the kitchen and gave the same wings back to the lady. She beamed at me and told me they were PERFECT.
She was probably mistaking internal heat for spice.
I think so. Still, that's a special kind of stupid.
Work in a restaurant for a few months. You'll find this describes the average customer.
I worked in a restaurant that sold high quality corned beef and pastrami. We're talking the best you've ever had in your life quality. Authentic shit. So, I got a complaint that the pastrami tasted like chemicals. I made sure the pastrami was okay. It tasted delicious, so I went out to the table and explained how that's just how pastrami tastes. Pastrami by its nature is heavily seasoned and cooked over the course of a week. She kept saying I was wrong and that our pastrami is not how pastrami is supposed to taste. So she asks me how we store it. I said in a steam cabinet. She says "See! I told you so. It's all chemicals." I tried to explain the steam cabinet is just a box with steam. She was believing none of it.
I believe she was tasting the coriander seeds and decided it was a chemical. She did not know what seasonings actually taste like. I think she was used to the low quality, high volume shit they sell in grocery stores that they call pastrami. It was a lot like someone complaining beef jerky is too salty. It literally cannot exist without the salt.
My 4 year old did this yesterday, its a common misconception, at least for small children.
Used to happen all the time at the restaurant I worked at.
TOO MUCH PEPPER! Literally no pepper. Would take it back to the kitchen, stand there for a bit, bring it back and it was perfect.
Man that job made me hate people...
Because all sauces are spicy, obviously. What a crazy lady.
Some people just crave the extra attention, consciously or not
And he tucked it under his junk for like 3 minutes.
Cheese and fries go well together.
Plot twist twist it wasn’t the waiter it was OP.
More like plate twist, amiright?
" Stupid customer thinks hes too good for floor fries"
The dishwashers must hate this guy.
Or he hates the dishwashers
Trust me we hate ourselves enough.
you can wash away the crumbs
but you can't wash away the pain
Who hurt you old friend
Fucken managers hurt us.
“We need you on dish tonight. The other dishwasher realized he was a dishwasher and quit.”
Bruh so many other dishwashers quit and they were great workers. Man i miss the good ones. Working somewhere for 2 years makes it hard to quit
Usually with superiority complexes
Hate*Hate = Love
I'm a dishwasher, we hate almost everybody and everything.
But as long as this server actually wipes the shit off of their plates before they put them in the bus tub, I don't give a fuck what else they do. They're a winner in my book.
oh and fuck those customers that put half a bottle of ketchup on their plates! seriously what the fuck is your problem??
I usually overestimate how much ketchup I need for the fries or food I’m dipping it in. Sometimes, halfway through my meal, I gotta add more ketchup but then I didn’t need as much, and so on.
From now on, due to your comment, I will pretend it is menstrual fluid and lick all remaining ketchup before leaving the table. Thank you for your insight.
I'm not even in a joking mood my man, chances are you're probably fine. There are people that literally cover 1/3 of the plate in ketchup. It's an obscene amount, like I couldn't even scoop it all into one hand if I wanted to.
If I had thanos fingers, I would snap everybody that covers more than 30% of a plate with ketchup.
They hate dishwashers obviously
That's a dish that goes into the washer without needing to be scrubbed first. We LOVE his guy!
You didn't see what OP did to it.
But I did taste it. Better than Campbell's. Mmm, mmm, goo!
Until the customer uses that plate for ketchup and it dries.
Stop, I'm having flashbacks.
Until the customer decides they need a plate's worth of sauce to accompany the fry
Every fuckin time
9 out of 10 dishwashers recommend this product.
Eh it's one clean plate and you can load like 15 per cycle so it's not that rough honestly, I hated the cook's who always burnt their sauces into the saute pans more than this kind of thing during my dishwasher days lol.
But did you weigh the fry he dropped against the new one?
Asking the real questions.
Don't worry it weighed the same because it was the same fry.
In some parts of the world there's not much point in sending back food with hair on it. They'd just remove the strand of hair and bring back the same food.
That is in most parts of the entire world. I've worked in high end restaurants in the US as a server. I've taken back dishes for having hair and the executive chef himself just pulled it off and passed it back with a fuck you look on his face.
The alternative is the line cooks eating it like a pack of wolves.
Maybe that executive chef shouldn't be dropping hairs on the plates in the first place
Usually it isn't the chef actually doing the cooking mid shift, he is overseeing everything. If you have visible hair on top, it was an expediter. If it is in the dish, it was probably a line cook. Even with hair nets, sometimes one gets through. I have seen much worse than hair in food. Metal wire from the grill brush, rubber band in soup, all kinds of shit. If you serve up 1000 people a day nearly every day, at some point something is going to have an error.
I wish more people understood that shit will happen. Despite every precaution taken, it happens. That’s why I’m so worried about asteroids.
Good ole service industry.
Yes but it’s the frequency of errors and what you do to recover from that error that makes the difference between a good restaurant and a bad one. People work hard to afford to take their families out to eat in the little free time they have, and with the amount of restaurants out there, they’ve chosen to spend their money and time at yours (not yours specifically, a chef’s). The right thing to do if there’s a foreign object in the food would be to make them a new dish, apologize for the error, and comp that dish. An exec chef that would judge a customer for not wanting to eat food with someone else’s mystery hair on it probably shouldn’t be an exec chef.
Well I agree with most of what you said. I am not a big advocate for comping dishes straight away unless there was something egregious, like the aforementioned wire from the brush. For hair, a remake is more appropriate to me unless the time involved really disrupts their meal. Too many people get free stuff as a reward for bratty behavior. That being said, I think with the hair, the chef was more thinking what they don't know doesn't hurt them. I don't necessarily believe he is right, but he also isn't technically wrong.
New York City
Very slightly heavier. Dust and hair has weight you know.
The real question is, how can OP be sure that he wasn't bamboozled and didn't get the same fry
This one looks like a good size fry to me. But there's no banana in sight so I guess we'll never know the true size.
OP got scammed
I've done this a few times and I always make sure to grab a larger fry. It's the little things that makes slow shifts fun
As a former waiter, this kind of thing always goes over well with customers. They typically love the silly stuff.
This one’s a scientist
Calling it now: this is getting reposted in mildly infuriating with something like:
"ordered extra fries, this is what I got!"
I guess it was a Self fulfilling prophecy
I'm pretty sure that would necessitate at least one more fry.
Too much effort. The explanation isn’t on the title, it’s on the picture.
ha ha ,I hope you left a tip in fry.
Or any of the other subs about "thathappened"...
There’s only one fry.
The post would definitely read: “ordered a large fry and this is all I got!”
You're gonna do it, aren't you?
waiter laughs and hands you a plate of fries
WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY FRIES?
You asked for extra fries.... But I only gave you one!
In less than a week.
The fry you dropped was bigger. I need to speak to the manager.
Uh, this is that fry.
I work in hospitality and it’s always awkward if you drop some food and of course you replace it but one chip haha One day how ever I was taking out a couple of meals and was bending down to put the food on the table in front of the two customers when for some reason I just stoped because I say a fly buzzing around the food, so The dude his wife and I sort of just stared at it and I assumed he would shew it away seeing as I had my hands full but he just stared at it and so did his wife and me and we all watched in unison as it landed in his meal, he then looked at me and said “ ew there’s a fly in my food” I was like oh come on man!
This act has the potential to be incredibly friendly or under other circumstances, extremely spiteful. Glad it’s friendly.
I'd enjoy watching the snide option from another table.
It's cute, but this is such a smart move from a service/business standpoint. Dude created a funny, positive interaction that the customer will remember and share. And it cost the restaurant a single French fry and three seconds of a dishwasher's time.
Either that or OP took a fry and put it on his side plate. I'd like to believe the former tho
Edit: former, not latter
I'd like to believe the latter tho
Don't you mean former? The latter would be your comment, the former would be the one that comes before it.
That's right! Thanks for the correction. I'll edit it. English is not my first language and there goes my first attempt to using these terms :P
You can think of it this way - Latter comes later. And former comes before
Former is like fore, which is what you yell before you hit a golf ball. Latter is like ladder, which is what you use to get on the roof to escape the dude who got hit by the golf ball when he didn't pay attention to your yell of "fore".
Shit, such a simple explanation and I've never thought of it that way!
I don't know, depends on the customer and the waiter. Glad it panned out, but a grumpy customer could see it as a passive aggressive move and get pissy.
That customer is gonna find something to cry about regardless.
Yeah, definitely dependent on the customer. If they already had good rapport and were joking etc. then this would be a funny move. Just trying it on a whim would be a risky proposition.
It’s pretty easy to read the situation and know that the customer will think it’s funny.
I had a guest ask for a to-go bowl for his soup (the bowl was virtually licked clean. He was just being a smart-ass) I said no problem and got him a 2 oz ramekin with a lid. The table loved it. Thought it was hilarious. I wouldn’t have done that if I thought there was any chance he actually wanted to bring any soup home. But it’s really easy to know when a guest is joking with you and is going to be receptive to a joke, like what happened with OP.
Maybe a reaction to "now you owe my one fry"
When I was a pizza delivery guy we did this for someone who we shorted a chicken wing. I wrote them an IOU for a single wing, and next time they ordered they got something along the lines of 8 supreme pizzas, 6 calzones, 6 racks of ribs, and a single chicken wing.
That was the best tip I've ever gotten.
You dont know dishwashing sir especially in a fast pace restaurant
Thank you u/Bleached-Asshole, very cool!
I love it when people point out the OP's slightly unusual name. Its like the fries at the bottom of the macdonalds bag. A totally unexpected surprise, but a welcomed one. It's like when you buy something and there was a discount you didn't know of. It's like a- okay i'll stop here. Thank you u/IgnorantTurtle, very cool!
Sometimes I feel like I should have picked a cooler name :/
You put 69 in your name, if thats not meme enough, I don't know what is. The unintentional flat irony is quite amusing. I bet you were already put 69 in your name before it was cool to put the meme duo "420 & 69". 5369 (Your number) + 36700 (A number I calculated using an mathematics algorithmatics system einstein) = 42069. :o e=mc2 :O Coincidence? I think not.
haha 69 lol
No, thank all of you.
ha ha that reminds me of a time when I was about six and I dropped my last slice of pizza. I cried and cried so the man removed all the toppings and cheese and gave me back the "clean" piece which was just the bread lol.
“I took a picture of a fry on a plate and made up a story!”
7000 12,000 people believed it!
Edit: Jesus only 8 minutes
53,000 people now. Only 2h holy shit
My waiter at bdubs dropped my wing on the tray. I would've been fine eating it but he said he'd get another one for me. He never did and I paid for one less wing. He got no tip.
Plot twist: he didn’t even work there and just stole one wing from every customer for himself.
Damn was that this week? I literally just did that and felt so bad I forgot about it 😓
Thank you for presenting us with this photo, Bleached-Asshole
looks like a mcdonald's fry packet on the side there
I'm a server, I've done this. If I'm not super busy and I'm joking around with my table, i will 100% go back to the kitchen and get one fry or three grapes. The chef knows me and knows I'm a weirdo with my tables so they dont care. It's funny for them and me, and if I'm doing it I already know I'm getting a good tip.
There are people that will squint at their fries and demand extra. They get a kids side of fries. I don't care, I dont own the place and I want you to be happy.
I get that you dont believe it happened this time but it definitely has happened before so its plausible.
If only Saitama was here. He'd appreciate it a lot.
Working so hard for those tips.
Damn that's the best customer service ever 😂 Sir pay this man xD
99.9% chance OP just put a single fry on a plate and made a picture
100% chance it's a repost
100% touched by human hand.
Let me tell you, I was about to make a similar comment, knowing it was an hilarious observation. But I first searched for the word "touched" on the page and found your comment, (brilliant with the 100%) and I was saddened to see no upvotes. Just wanted you to know someone appreciated it.
this waiter must really hate the dish washer...
The dish washer hates this guy.
How the fuck does this have 65K upvotes.
When i was a server i would do that especially if it was a little kid like OP.
That’s a nicely hand picked, evenly cut FF
thats pure justice!
